How to Boost Your Child's Self-Esteem

 *This is a collaborative post

In this guide from a girls school in London, we take a look at the ways you can help your child boost their self-esteem. Self-esteem is a big thing for children to manage. It can be a tough part of developing a child’s skills, but it’s also a good way of helping your child learn to believe in themselves and develop their abilities further.

Give your child the freedom to try new things

Having a go at different things really helps a child with their understanding of how to cope under pressure, or to handle a different style of working. Children should feel like they can pick up whatever activities that interest them, or something that piques their curiosity. Allow them that freedom to explore these things to give them a natural sense of confidence.

Try out different sports and group activities

Sports are a good way of building up a happier frame of mind, which in turn is going to boost a child’s level of self-esteem. You could try out sports with your child, or heading to a local activity centre to see what’s on offer there. It’s a good place to allow your child to figure out what they like and what they don’t like, as well as helping your child enjoy physical activities.

Work on your child’s independence

Being independent means you’re aware of your skills and how they can be of benefit to others. Start by giving your child chores, or other forms of responsibility, to build their sense of ownership and resilience. Then you can work on your child’s management of being on their own and working things out by themselves. It’s a good chance for your child to pick up new ways of working, as well as showing how confident they can be in their abilities.
